Bank of Ireland today announced that it is partnering with WebPort Global, the global online portal specifically designed to support SME growth through International trade, to provide the bank’s SME customers with free access to the highly successful platform. The aim of the Bank of Ireland partnership with WebPort Global is to help SMEs to develop and expand their export capabilities, regardless of where they are in the cycle.

Bank of Ireland is providing free access to the portal so that SME customers can be introduced to WebPort Global’s worldwide networks to help them connect with international partners, access critical information on foreign trade, and introduce them to purchasing and selling opportunities globally.

Speaking about the Bank of Ireland/WebPort Global partnership, Mark Cunningham, Director of Business Banking, said “We understand the challenges facing our SME customers seeking to expand abroad and we know that for those aiming to access international markets, any assistance we can give is appreciated. In the wake of the UK’s recent Brexit decision, there is an ever greater need for SMEs to expand into new markets and as Ireland’s No. 1 business bank, our exclusive partnership with WebPort Global will offer a fast-track advantage for many of our customers. Through an extensive network of experts and contacts, the portal identifies bespoke leads in different target markets and will assist and expedite SMEs as they look to grow and expand."

Maureen Pace, President of WebPort Global, said “We look forward to welcoming Bank of Ireland customers to our global network. Built for the SME sector, WebPort Global helps companies build trusted professional relationships, source opportunities, and share expertise, assisting SME’s to conduct business in a global marketplace.”
